From the Inside Flap
'NO' is RJ's least favorite word . . . and he tries his best to convince his dad, his mom, and his teacher to turn "No" into "Maybe" or "We'll see" or "Later" or "I'll think about it." Even though he doesn't have much success, RJ keeps arguing until his teacher suggests that he try to join her classroom's Say YES to NO Club. If RJ can learn how to accept "No" for an answer and to disagree appropriately with his teacher and parents, he can add his name to the club's Star Board. RJ finds that lots of praise and some rewards come his way when he uses these skills the right way!
Author Julia Cook helps K-6 readers laugh and learn along with RJ as he understands the benefits of demonstrating these social skills both at home and in school. Tips for parents and educators on how to teach and encourage kids to use the skills of accepting "No" for an answer and disagreeing appropriately are included in the book.
I Just Don't Like the Sound of NO! is another title in the BEST ME I Can Be! series of books from the Boys Town Press to teach children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful.
Winner of the 2011 MOM's Choice Awards Honoring Excelence. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author
With over a million books in print, Julia Cook, a former school counsellor, never dreamed she could evolve into an award-winning children's book author. Several years ago, Julia was searching for an effective story to teach children the difference between tattling and telling. When she couldn't find the right resource, she decided to write her own book, Tattle Tongue. Fast forward several years and she has more than 50 published books and activity guides. Julia takes top research and creativity and translates it into "kid language" that is both entertaining and engaging. Her light, humourous approach keeps kids laughing while they're learning good behaviour skills. The goal behind all of Julia's books and efforts is to actively involve people into her fun and creative stories and teach them to become life-long problem solvers.
